Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is a common problem for patients with bladder, prostate, vulvar, rectal, scrotal and testicular pain.  In fact, these chronic pelvic pain conditions are believed to be the result of a neuromuscular disorder, including tight, hypertonic pelvic floor muscles. And, yes, hypertonic pelvic floor muscles can trigger urinary frequency, urgency, pressure and/or pain. Here are several products that we believe will help you as you seek to reduce your pain and restore muscle health.

#1 - You MUST start with your own education. The pelvic cavity contains many different structures: muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs. Before your first physical therapy appointment, you should familiarize yourself with these structures and where they are located. Then, during your first pelvic floor appointment, you will have a much clearer idea of what the physical therapist is touching and what they are working on.

Heat and Cold Therapy

Heat and/or cold therapy can be vital during flares. For some patients, heat feels the most comfortable because it can help to relax muscles. But, for others, an ice pack feels the most comfortable. 

Pain Relief

Muscles may respond to typical OTC analgesics, such as Advil or Tylenol. That said, some OTC supplements and/or topical products may also help reduce pain and discomfort. The book, When It Hurts Down There, provides many fabulous suggestions for reducing pelvic pain.
